Your Clone Seeks Cardinal Truths

by Robert Frazier
 

Consumed by metrics, her motto:
An equation for everything
And everything in its equation.
So keep the facts simple, direct,
without possible permutations.
Certainly without mutations.
Just stick to the truest number
of how many you have become.
For she still believes she sees
her own face in every crowd.

My father taught cryptography for Army Security after working with Turing’s bombe at Bletchley Park during WWII. My mother was an oil painter who studied with Emile Albert Gruppé in Rockport. The science of deciphering gibberish into plain text somehow meshes with impressionistic imagery in my writing. I live on Nantucket Island with my wife, Karol Lindquist, a nationally recognized basketmaker, while my daughter, Timalyne, was a graduate of Clarion West in 1995 (I was at Clarion ‘80). I am the author of nine books of poetry, and a three-time winner of the Rhysling Award. I have published over one hundred poems in Asimov’s.
